    I have some Black Iris blooming in my new backyard and I think I have a whack of Hydrangea bushes but they haven't bloomed yet so Its just a guess - In the front I have dark pink Peonies and more Hydrangea (still a guess) We'll see what opens up in the next few weeks.

    MQ,
    Do you have problems with earwigs in your garden? They might be the culprit. I haven't had much luck growing lupins. I started some from seed this Spring and they are doing alright so far. I don't know whether they will bloom this year...they sure are spectacular looking when in bloom.

    Need some help

    Have tried to grow sunflowers. Once they sprut through the ground they are eaten(appears) by something. Any ideas what might be getting them & how to prevent it. They are very small when this happens.

    Thanks for contributing, Patty. You have a lovely yard. Besides the cherry, what other tomatoes are you growing?

    I have problems with birds eating my vegetable seedlings. Cutworms can also be the culprit. I don't have trouble with squirrels, thank goodness.

    There are things you can do to save your plants from hungry critters, you just have to decide how far you want to take it. My husband built me a wooden enclosure that is netted on three sides for my beets. When they grow to the height of the enclosure, I remove it. I used to have to reseed my beets at least once in the growing season, but so far so good with this method.

    Another thing you can do is start the sunflowers in small pots and then transplant them into the garden. To prevent cutworms from getting them, you can put a toothpick on either side of the stem - they can't wrap themselves around the stem then to cut it off). This is a good tip for tomatoes and peppers as well.

    If you have some large mesh, then you can plant the seeds and place mesh over top, cover with soil. Hope some of my suggestions make sense, a person almost has to be a detective to find out what's happening in their yard. Good luck and don't be discouraged!

    Marstec... or other greenthumbers around... figured it would be ok to ask this here ? This sunflower was broken 2 days ago (by a squirrel I think).. it wasn't staked yet . The stem was bent at a 90 degree angle but wasn't detached so I staked it and made a bamboo/pantyhose "cast" at the break point and where one leaf was slightly ripped from the stem. Now 2 days later.... this 1 leaf (previously unaffected ? )is totally wilted but the rest of the flower shows new growth Any ideas ?
